Yes, we are pleased to offer ozone (O3) therapy at our Orange, CA dental office. We make fresh distilled ozone water daily that is utilized throughout all of our operatories and used as a pre-rinse. We also use ozone gas during our restorative treatment and dental cleanings. Ozone oil is also available to purchase in our office for oral care.
How We Use Ozone Gas in Dentistry
Ozone is a highly active form of oxygen and potent antimicrobial that acts as a disinfectant. Non-invasive ozone therapy is used in dentistry to kill harmful bacteria and leave healthy bacteria to do their job. Among the many applications, ozone application has become our preferred technique to:
- Disinfect a prepared tooth after removing decay
- Minimize or eliminate tooth sensitivity
- Prevent formation of new cavities
- Sterilize a tooth after root canal treatment
- Disinfect tooth socket after extraction
Ozone is also helpful for disinfecting areas of chronic gum disease. Our hygienist applies ozone as a gas or in oils or water and allows it to penetrate the gum tissue that surrounds each tooth.
Discover the Benefits of Ozone Therapy
All types of patients can benefit from ozone therapy, including children, those with dental anxiety, and patients with sensitive smiles. If you would like to learn more about how we use ozone therapy and its benefits, please call our Orange, CA dental office.
